It has trust, innocence,passion, romance,sensuality,passion,history,lore, danger, intrigue, forgiveness and wit. The characters are bold, charming, witty, enchanting and you can't help but fall in love with each and everyone of them. This story is full of romance, passion and makes the Scottish Highlands come to live. The hero, Tristan, is charming, handsome, strong, battling his self to become a better person, a MacGregor, who is supposed to hate the Fergusson's whose father killed Tristan's beloved uncle and a true hero.

    fresh seventeenth century romance

    In 1685 Tristan MacGregor attends the coronation of the Duke of York as the king. He rescues Isobel Fergusson, but also roguishly kisses her. They spend time together during the galas as they are attracted to one another. However, Isobel loathes his clan who killed her father and her kin; leaving her to raise her siblings on a patch of nothingness. Her family and his are hostile adversaries.

    Isobel returns home thinking of Tristan on the way and once she arrives there, she still cannot move pass his image. She knows she loves her rake. Tristan reciprocates. He decides he will marry the woman he loves and let the feud be damned, but she refuses. Patiently he tries to persuade her that he is until she finally begins to believe him. Tristan brings his beloved and her siblings to meet his family announcing they will marry. Both clans are stunned but reactions lead to shocking disclosures by MacGregor and Fergusson family members.

    Though the theme of feuding clans has been used frequently in historicals romances, Paula Quinn provides a fresh seventeenth century romance mostly due to lead couple especially the latest MacGregor (see Ravished by a Highlander and Laird of the Mists). Tristan with his persistence and tolerance makes the story line great as he calmly persuades his beloved (and her siblings) to trust her heart that he believes leads to him. Seduced by a Highlander is another winning historical by always dependable for excellence Paula Quinn.

    Readers never grow tired of Paula Quinn's Delightful Characters

    When you are growing up your family raises you to act one way, as an adult you start to believe in your heart that you could be another kind of person and then you encounter someone who releases you to be all these things and more. When you heart meets the source that causes it to beat you find peace in your soul and the strength to be a better person.

    Tristan MacGregor and Isobel Fergusson families have a long running feud that has brought more than enough bloodshed and death to both sides. The families were raised to hate each other and while Tristan has some reservations about this philosophy, Isobel on the other hand despises him and everything his family name brings up. Isobel lost both parents and has been forced to raise her younger brothers on a barely survivable piece of land all the while cursing the MacGregor's for causing this misery. The years have made her bitter and angry toward the MacGregor's and even after she meets Tristan and listens to all those charming words he says while the dimple flashes in his smile it cannot melt her heart, or can it. Tristan knows from the moment he had set his eyes upon Isobel that she is the one for him but how to convince her of this is a whole other matter.

    Tristan long ago buried the anger he felt at his family losses during this feud even the guilt from his belief he brought all this upon the families when a childish fight moved men to push one another to despair. But the depth of his feelings for Isobel shake him to his boots and when he chases her to her home and starts a collision of incidents that would drive weaker men away he is more than ever convinced Isobel is the woman for him. Now Tristan must show his sincerity to Isobel and prove that his feelings are pure in nature not brought about to cause more pain and that is a whole other feat he may not accomplish. Tristan must contend with her attitude, all those brothers that are looking for trouble and one in particular that needs to be tamed. But Tristan is patient and he has plans on how to win Isobel's heart and convince everyone that their love can bring peace in both families by using wit and not swords.

    As the days turn to weeks and the stories he spins of long ago knights and damsels in distress become more interesting the ice melts around Isobel's heart and too soon she finds herself completely ensnared in Tristan's trap or maybe it is the arms that are wrapped around her. Yet there is one hurdle that Tristan must knock down and that would be his family and to convince them that this is a love match is another story that makes one believe anything is possible with a determined man and a stubborn woman. But when all the skeletons come out of the closet and the truth no one can bear to hear is revealed will love be enough to keep them together?

    Paula Quinn has written another engrossing story in the MacGregor saga and this son is as enticing and fun as the last. The men are such wonderful hero's but such how venerable they can be which makes them that much more believable. Enjoy these two books and anticipate the ones coming up.

    I liked this one far less than the two prequels to the series and ravished by a highlander but it's worth the read because of the attachment Paula has managed to give me to the overall story. I found the leading lady rather frustrating and annoying at times. There wasn't any advenure in this story as in the last book. We just had to read about Tristan being treated poorly and verbally abused while stuck in bed for a good chunk of the story. Any ways it's decent but I hope the next book is better

    Good 2nd book in series

    I think I liked book #1 better but this was good as well. I would've liked more build up of past characters, but the story is still good. Tristan finds himself in love with his family's enemy. But it's even harder for Isobel for forgive and forget as her entire family was also destroyed.

    Loved the book, as usual, as with all of her other books. Ravished By a Highlander was more to my taste because of the bigger difficulty in getting the girl, i guess. But liked this story too!

    Cute and sexy highlanders

    I had not read Ms. Quinn's first book in this series, Ravished by a Highlander, but when the opportunity arose to read the 2nd book in the series, Seduced by a Highlander, I jumped on it!

    10 years ago, young Tristan MacGregor got into a fight with young Alex Fegusson. It spiraled out of control and when the dust cleared, Tristan's favorite uncle was dead, and Alex's widowed father was dead too - leaving his older brother Patrick as leader of the Fergusson clan. Patrick and Isobel were still children themselves, and had to take care of their 5 younger brothers, leaving them susceptable to raids from stronger clans nearby. The bitterness between the MacGregors and Fergussons was deep and strong.


    I am a sucker for handsome, rogue-ish Highlanders. The kilts, the speech, the stubborn perseverance...I love it all. I liked Tristan, very much. He was a sympathetic hero - I don't know if you could call him a Beta hero or not - he knew how to fight and was good at it, but he preferred to convince you to see his way of things instead of beating you until you give in. His father and brothers were more prone to get their way by fighting, Tristan was more like his dead uncle.

    Isobel was a terrific heroine - spunky, opinionated, fiercely loyal to her family. She was a hard worker and cared for her brothers very much.

    I was captured from Isobel and Tristan's first meeting. The back-and-forth between them was lively and engaging. When Tristan goes to Isobel's home to try to set things right - hilarity ensues. Isobel's brothers were very funny, as was Tristan's reaction to them. I've said before I don't like kids in my romance stories but these kids were funny.

    I really, really enjoyed this book - the end was a bit abrubt, I would have liked a bit more detail, but other than that it was a sweet story.

    Poor Audio Match

    I love a well written highlander tale and will often relisten to a good one several times a year. I listened to this one and it's prequel (Ravished by a Highlander) twice this a year, and I have the same opinion of them as I did the first time. The story is fine, and the prequel is also well written. However, the actress that narrates the two stories (Carrington MacDuffie) may have the right surname, but she is obviously American, or at least raised with a particular midwest accent. None of the Highlander or English accents are well done and the entire cast of the books are Scotish or English and it's rather painful to listen to. Sometimes it even seems as though she forgets that she is supposed to be doing an accent at all. Customers that purchase audio books pay a premium for them *because they have been performed. It seems to me that if those of us that do pay that premium should be treated to a decently done accent when one is required, as well as a fairly decent range of voices for different characters. I've listened to other books performed by MacDuffie and they are not as difficult to listen to as these two particular performances. If Brilliance Audio had a comments page, I would post this there, but since they don't, I'm just going to warn those that look for audio reviews that these two are not worth the extra money to get them in audio form.

    Hot Read!

    As a fan of Scottish historical romances, I was extremely excited to be given the opportunity to review Paula Quinn's Seduced by a Highlander. To my delight, I soon discovered this was a book that had all of the fundamental elements of a sweeping romance, as well as a few surprises along the way.

    I fell in love with the hero, Tristan MacGregor, from the start. You know he's a man who is accustomed to women fawning over him, but from the moment he meets saucy Isobel Fergusson -- the daughter of his sworn enemy -- you learn there is far more to the man than meets the eye. As someone who has suffered an extreme and unforgettable loss, he also has a compassion for others that runs very deep. Due to this, Isobel fascinates him. She's as proud as he is, equally complex, and though she denies it wants him as much as he wants her. The first few chapters establish this chemistry and, in a wonderfully paced story that focuses on romance versus sexual tension, I found myself unable to put the book down.

    The secondary characters are equally complex and are also given proper time to shine. In some circumstances an abundance of characters can become confusing or take away from the story. Not so here. Instead you are given the opportunity to watch two families who have suffered start to grieve, accept, and heal. I loved the scenes with Isobel's brother's and Tristan, as well as scenes involving Tristan's family when he reveals his love for his enemy, mends old wounds, and guides everyone toward a future that doesn't include bitterness or resentment.

    Seduced by a Highlander is a must read for historical romance fans, especially those with a love of Scottish heroes and unforgettable love stories. While there is plenty of angst, there is also a lot of heart. I was thoroughly engaged from start to finish and read the entire book in one sitting. That is rarity for me, especially when reading a full length novel. Once I was introduced to Tristan and Isobel, I couldn't stop reading until I knew how things worked out for them. I am eagerly awaiting the next installment in the series, and fully intend to purchase the first book which I somehow managed to miss. Seduced by a Highlander has established Paula Quinn as a must read author on my TBR list.

    A Great Historical Highland Romance

    Tristian MacGregor blames himself for his uncle's death, fighting with Alex Fergusson brought the wrath Alex' father to their door to exact revenge for the fight, when Tristian's uncle Robert Campbell is killed during the mele it starts a clan feud. Fast forward ten years Tristian finds himself in England attending court for a new kings coronation where he meets a beautiful young lady whom captivates him to the point of obsession. When he realizes that she is Isobel Fergusson, the daughter of the man who had killed his uncle he knows he should just walk away and be done with it, but he is drawn to her in a way that leaves him longing only for her! When Isobel meets a dashing young highlander at court she is immediately drawn to his dashing good looks and his charming ways, but once she realizes he is a MacGregor, the clan who murdered her father, she wants nothing to do with him, the only problem is she can't forget his kisses ! I loved this story, the main characters are a great, Tristan is an honorable man who isn't afraid to go after what he wants. Isobel hasn't had an easy life after her parents died she had to step in and take care of her younger brothers. I felt myself really wanting something better for Isobel, and I felt like that something better was Tristan. This was a romance novel in every sense of the word, I would have to say I loved the humor woven into this story. My favorite parts of the story were when Isobel's brothers pulled the little shenanigans when Tristan first arrived at their home, the vivid descriptions of the things that went on were really funny. I also enjoyed how Tristan stood with Isobel's brothers when another clan came to burn their crop and later he showed them how to fight with swords. Over and over we were shown what a great guy he was. I really think it might have been easier to write what I didn't like about this book because that would have been nothing, I enjoyed every aspect of this story and if you are a fan of historical highland romances then you wont want to miss this book! I was provided a copy of this book from the publisher in return for an honest review!
